We’re standing upon the seashore A ship at my side spreads his white sails to the wind to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. I stand and watch him until at length he hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at our side says: “There, he’s gone!” “Gone where?” Gone from our sight That is all He’s just as large in mast and hull and spar as he was when he left our side and he’s just as able to bear his load of living freight to his destined port. His diminished size is in us not in him. And just at the moment when someone at our side says: “There, he’s gone!” there are other eyes watching his coming And other voices ready to take up the glad shout: “Here he comes!” And that is dying.

Dear Charlotte, Robert, Dirk, Debra, Rebecce and all others of your family. We, my wife Laura and children Vincent, Rozemarijn and Mimi were verry chocked to hear that John, for us in the Netherlands Joop, died. I have great remembers to Joop when I was young. We played on sundays a lot of nice tabele footballgames in Weesp. Also our visits to the States, where we always met Joop, gives me and my family warm rememberances. We feel very sorry that Joop, after a life of hard working and being a great familyman, was not givin more years. Dear Charlotte and all of your beloved ones we wish you all the strenghts to come over this great loss. We rembember Joop as a nice member of the Bavinck family. With deep respect and love, Laura and Dick Stork
